Google has turned crapomundo over the past few months. Can someone get me something that, when I search for (say) a band will turn up the official site and not a million sites advertising ringtones?

You could try Dogpile (http://www.dogpile.com/)

Google is one of the search engines it uses for its results. It has things like a search refiner to cut through the crap your initial search throws out...

Stop searching for bands that are so gay that the retarded musical ringtone people like them.

Fuck off bitches. I'm perfectly well aquainted with how to use Google and have successfully for years. I usually win fucking search engine challenges.

I'd probably still use it for depth, but I want a site into which I can plug the name of a track I hear on TV (http://www.google.com/search?q=%22El+Medico%22+%2B%22Chupa+Chupa%22&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&start=0&sa=N) into and get the official site (http://www.cubaton.com/content/artister_en.php?id=10&lan=eng) somewhere in the search results.

If you're not getting what you're looking for, then obviously you're using it wrong.

If you want to search for a band and not get ringtones:

"crap band" -ringtone

Yeah duh.

Except that most ringtone sites are in spanish/amharic/slovenian.
